When you travel the world, you want to do it in style. We all do. You really don’t want to throw all of your clothes in a Hefty bag and take off for Milan, now do you? Nor do you want to borrow the luggage that your grandmother got as a wedding gift. You want to travel in style with stylish luggage. You want to have something that will hold your belongings comfortably, yet keep your things as wrinkle-free as possible. With a little research and some bargain hunting, you should be able to find stylish luggage for world travel at an affordable price.
Don’t think about the routine rectangle suitcase right now, let’s go into other garment bags and accessories that can keep your clothing neat and organized on your jaunt around the world. If you are a frequent traveler for business or pleasure, these items are almost a must in your Global travel accessory department. Several small folding cubes can fit inside your suitcases and will help to insure that your clothing arrives with as few wrinkles as it was packed with. A suit bag can keep a man’s suit or ladies dress from becoming wrinkled by remaining in its hanging state for the duration of the trip. If you will remove the garment from the bag as soon as you arrive at your destination, this will help minimize any small wrinkles that may have gotten into the clothing during your long flight. A tie case, preferably leather, will keep your ties from getting wrinkles down the front of them and keep them organized as well.
Don’t forget to pack a compact travel umbrella in your handbag or carry-on luggage. You never know when it may be raining when you land in your destination country. Also, by packing a small travel alarm clock, you will never have to worry about missing that hotel wakeup call again. Also, when traveling to a foreign country, a money belt is a good investment in case of emergencies.
By keeping a fair amount of money in your money belt, as well as a spare credit card, you will help insure that if something were to happen to you while in a strange country you can still afford to get back home with no problems. You can now find money belts is a variety of fabrics including nylon, silk and cotton. Any item that you bring that you plan to leave at the hotel should be locked in the hotel safe when not on your person. Any jewelry or any valuables of any kind would be best left locked up so as not to tempt anyone with stealing your priceless valuables.
In order to keep things better organized for yourself, it is best to pack in coordinating or matching luggage. If you have 4 bags and they all look different, it will be harder to remember your luggage and retrieve it quickly in the airports and other terminals. Matching luggage sets can get pricey, but there are quality sets on the market at discount prices. Remember that unfortunately, you will be judged by how you look and what is surrounding you, so when you are standing in the airport in Milan wearing cutoff jeans and flip flops, surrounded by 14 Hefty bags, you will likely not get the same welcome as if you had purchased a nice set of matching luggage and worn nicer clothing.
Post 9/11, airport security has been greatly heightened and there is a good possibility that your suitcase could be searched. If this happens, keep in mind that a well organized suitcase is not only easier to search, but easier to repack by airport security. Things like packing cubes and shaving kits will ease the repacking and also help you tremendously when unpacking and repacking at your destination. Small things like tie cases and laundry bags seem minuscule, but will be of the largest convenience in your world travels.
The best way to have stylish luggage for world travel is to make sure it matches and is organized. Organization is the key to much happiness in the world, and if you can start your vacation organized, then it is sure to remain happy and fun.
